Cotroneo is the second top DPW official this past year to resign or be fired since the Westchester County District Attorney's office began an investigation into an alleged kickback scheme to defraud the City of New Rochelle by submitting phony invoices. Former DPW Commissioner Jeffrey Coleman resigned unexpectedly last July, just days after investigators from the DA's office visited the New Rochelle DPW City Yard at 224 East Main Street.
DPW Fleet Manager Richard Fevang, under investigation by the District Attorney for 8 of the last 11 years, is widely expected to be indicated as soon as next week.
